When I began the Sweatshirt Jacket for Kids, it struck me that a matching teddy bear pattern would be most appropriate, especially for younger children's bears! So, I began a jacket with the one largish bear I had - a Gund(tm) bear that has been well-loved for 21 years. This bear is rather rotund with a very large head, and short arms and legs. In my subsequent search for typical bear sizes, I discovered there really aren't any! Teddy bears come in all sizes and shapes - much like people, but generally, they are not proportioned like people. So I chose 3 bear lengths and designed a jacket to fit all 3, in an effort to cover a wider range of the teddy bear sizes a child might own. The jacket has most of the design details of the full-sized Sweatshirt Jackets, with a few small changes to accommodate the unique sizing of a teddy bear. In this way, a knitter, new to sweater making, gets much of the "exercise" of making a jacket, while using much less yarn and taking much less time! I hope you'll enjoy knitting these jackets, as much as I have!
